Seems to be a virus, wipes out most internet bandwidth.
I never install it yet my Anti Virus found it hidden in my system, I don't like that intrusion at all!

Vipre catches it as potentially unwanted. Something is slowing my bandwidth down quite a lot. Bud reports the same. I'm going to remove it and see what happens
Causes my computer to crash, got many blue screens since I installed it and after I removed it they were gone
I keep getting pop ups from PPTV. Then I found 200 over unknown videos in my hard drive. I was having trouble closing my windows and applications. The system slowed down tremendously.
no idea. seems to have entered in firewall settings. Octoshape main program was seen finding place in firewall setting as "allow" This was unchecked but not deleted . want more details to allow or delete.
It is a process which are used by media streaming applications

When I installed the DirecTV player this was installed as well. Based on the description it is used by DirecTV player to "increases the quality and stability of video streams". Check C:\Users\ YOURNAME \AppDate\Roaming\Octoshape and look at the date. Then see if you installed a streaming media player that day. If so it's clean.

Octoshape is a patented technology that is able to read proprietary video streams using UDP packets from various servers therefore avoiding re-buffering and granting better availability. On the client side, it optimizes the packets transfer in order to get the best video quality that your bandwidth allows. Without this application you can't read the video streams that have been formatted in this proprietary format and it is likely that you paid a media content provider to have access to these videos. If you delete the exe, you will probably be asked to re-install it to view the streams.
